From Viện Goethe:

In July, eight members of the Hanoi New Music Ensemble travelled to Yogyakarta for a concert on invitation of the The New Yogyakarta Contemporary Ensemble. The Goethe-Institut supported this initiative and the idea of dialogue and exchange between the two ensembles for contemporary music.

In September, eight members of The Yogjakarta Contemporary Music Ensemble pay their visit to their Hanoi colleagues and friends.

The The New Yogyakarta Contemporary Ensemble was founded in October 2017 by leading Indonesian cellist Asep Hidayat. The members of the ensemble play both western as well as Indonesian music. Their uniqueness lies in their desire to transfer: they take up traditions from other countries and do not hesitate to translate them into a new language. Although the New Ensemble Contemporary Yogyakarta has not existed for so long, its reputation has grown beyond the boundaries of Indonesia.
